Misawa AFB connects to DMON
The US Air Force’s Misawa Air Force (AFB) Base F-16C simulator has connected to Northrop Grumman’s Distributed Mission Operations Network (DMON).
DMON provides the virtual-constructive backbone for the US Air Force’s Live, Virtual and Constructive training technology.
The new connectivity of the Draughon Range to the DMON enables Misawa AFB in Japan to join on-demand training events with other DMON participants around the globe. These events include daily small team training missions, as well as large force exercises like Red Flag Alaska, Northern Edge and Distant Frontier. The connection of local simulators, threat generation systems, live range threats and live aircraft add significant training complexity to daily events.
DMON allows different aircraft simulator platforms located across the globe to seamlessly interoperate and train together in a realistic virtual environment via a secure network.
Mobility Air Force Distributed Mission Operations uses the Distributed Training Center Network (DTCN) to interconnect its training sites. The DMON and DTCN can connect on-demand to allow the platforms to train together.
